Advance Partners has always had one simple mission: to help staffing firms grow. The Paychex acquisition helps position Advance to serve its clients with even more robust offerings and expertise to accelerate growth. Advance will continue to operate with the same employees and senior leadership team, but now with the financial backing and technology of a leading human capital management company.
“We look forward to helping guide our company to the next level of service excellence,” said Adam Stern, President of Advance Partners.
Paychex resources to a growing industry
“The staffing outsourcing business is a growing industry that serves many small and mid-sized firms, which is a perfect fit for Paychex,” says Martin Mucci, Paychex president and CEO. “We are excited about Advance Partners joining the Paychex family. And, given Paychex’s extensive product suite, financial strength, and access to capital, we can help expand Advance Partners’ product offering and accelerate client growth.”
Industry data shows there are more than three million temporary staffing employees in the United States, and approximately 10,000 small and mid-sized staffing businesses that support this employee population.
“We believe the temporary staffing business is going to continue to grow, due in part to ever-increasing government regulation, including the Affordable Care Act and newly proposed overtime rules. Paychex is uniquely positioned to bring our regulatory expertise to staffing firms,” says Mucci. “Paychex already provides payroll and HR services to a number of staffing companies who are among our nearly 600,000 clients, and this acquisition will allow us to offer them more services and support.”
Benefits for clients
Advance Partners’ staffing firm clients work with more than 7,500 businesses. Those clients hire and process approximately 200,000 temporary positions annually.
“This announcement marks a great day for the clients of Advance Partners,” says Joel Adelman, Advance Partners founder and CEO. “Our mission has always been to help staffing firms grow. Now, as part of the Paychex family, we can leverage the capital, technology, and insurance resources of a leading provider of human capital management solutions to offer our clients a more complete suite of services to further accelerate their growth. The entire senior team at Advance is thrilled with this opportunity and looks forward to continue working with our talented associates here in Cleveland, Ohio.”
